Reverend Dr Ock Soo Park, Guest speaker at the conference touch on the deadly COVID-19 pandemic in which the world woke up to encounter.
The Christian Leaders Fellowship (CLF), an interdenominational Christian Leaders Organization has held its 2021 National Chaplin's Conference Connect and Exchange at the Christ Anglican Church University of Ghana, Legon in Accra.
The Conference brought together Christian leaders from all over Africa and beyond, Chaplain's of Educational Institutions and Correctional Centers, upcoming Pastors and Evangelists to learn the gospel of Jesus Christ and trained in the mind of God.
Speaking at the ceremony Reverend David OH who is the Foreign Affairs Director of Good News Mission and Leader of Christian Leaders Fellowship mentioned the need for Christians Leaders to re-align with the Unadulterated truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ which can impact hope and assurance in the hearts of many.
"You cannot give what you don't have, or have not received from God, which is hope" hence Pastors, Chaplains and all leaders in every part of Africa must first receive the heart and mind of God, and be able to transfer the same heart to the masses," he stated.
Reverend OH mentioned that it is for this purpose that the Christian leader's Fellowship has taken upon themselves to embark on this national CLF Conference involving Christians Leaders from all over Africa and beyond to be trained on the mind of God.
On his part, Reverend Dr Ock Soo Park Guest speaker at the conference touch on the deadly COVID-19 pandemic in which the world woke up to encounter.
According to him, the pandemic has, in the least terms, shaking the very foundations of the earth and humanity throughout the entire world with no nations spared.
He stated on how innumerable homes and livelihoods have been shattered, or permanently affected in the adverse, that nothing seems plausible to bring the minds and hearts of the affected family, friends and loved ones to rest.
Reverend Dr Park said the advent of COVID-19 has resulted in the prevention of gatherings, and even if allowed, done so with restrictions and the requirement of strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocols.
"Nonetheless, many still live in fear! But can Christian Leaders live up to the task of giving hope, or have they failed? In seeking possible answers to this question, it has become evident that the Leaders of Faith-Based Organizations, especially Christians, owe it to their cause and calling, the need to rekindle themselves first in the deep knowledge of the Light and The Gospel of Jesus Christ."
This is believed, will be the trump card with which they can transfer the same hope and assurance to the many still living in despair and uncertainty. He lamented.
Chaplain from the Ghana Immigration Service, Reverend Father Joseph Oko Odamtten expressed his appreciation to the CLF leaders for organizing such a laudable conference for pastors to be schooled and trained in the mind of God especially in times of difficulty where the advent of COVID-19 has taken away much life.
According to him, the advent of COVID-19 is a sign of the coming of Christ Jesus our Lord, therefore Christians need to prepare.
